The scholarship
for international university cooperations

BWS plus

BWS plus was designed specifically for universities from Baden-Württemberg. It is part of the Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM for university students, and supports new and innovative cooperative projects by universities worldwide.

Target audience
Universities from Baden-Württemberg
Projects with a term of 1 to 3 years
Scholarship amount
10,000 to 50,000 euros per year


Projects should serve to build and expand relationships between Baden-Württemberg universities and international universities, or to intensify existing contacts. Each university may submit multiple applications, or multiple universities can work together to submit a single application.

Projects with terms between one and three years can receive funding of between 10,000 and 50,000 euros. Institutions can apply for scholarship and project funds. Purely research-focused projects cannot be funded.

Interested universities can apply for the BWS plus once per year. Applications are always due by 28 February.

ATTENTION: The application deadline has been moved to march 4th, 23:59. 

The decisions will be announced approx. four months after the application deadline. Baden-Württemberg universities that take part in the Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM for university students can participate in the BWS plus award process.


Applications are submitted via the BWS-World portal. Applications cannot be submitted directly to the Baden-Württemberg Foundation.
